I just want to know if there would be any advantage to renting my house to myself.

No.  If you live there as a personal residence, you generally can't rent it to yourself. You would end up taking improper deductions for non-deducible expenses like your utilities, and you would pay capital gains tax when you sell instead of qualifying for the gains exclusion on a personal residence.
